Meanwhile ... the saga continues:

Cheesy


Judge puts brakes on Labor's plans to kick John Setka out of party


By Noel Towell
July 11, 2019 — 11.50 am


Labor Leader Anthony Albanese might have to go all the way to the High Court in his fight to expel controversial building union leader John Setka from the party.

A hearing in Victoria’s Supreme Court on Thursday morning heard the dispute between the union leader and the party looks set to be put on hold in the short term while the case is decided.

Mr Setka is challenging the legal basis of the request for expulsion.

Labor’s National Executive was due to meet on Monday to decide on Mr Setka’s future with the party but Supreme Court Justice Peter Riordan told lawyers for Mr Setka and for the ALP on Thursday that the case was unlikely to be decided before that meeting.

Mr Albanese wants the union leader out of the party, arguing that Mr Setka has repeatedly embarrassed the ALP over the years, most recently with reported comments, that Mr Setka denies, denigrating the work of domestic violence campaigner Rosie Batty.

But the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union’s Victorian construction branch secretary argues that Labor’s Executive Committee does not have the power to expel him and that power lies with the party’s Victorian branch.

In court on Thursday, Michael Borsky, QC, appearing for Labor’s National Secretary Noah Carroll said Mr Setka’s legal argument was ‘‘nonsensical’’ and that it was ‘‘unworkable for a national political party’’ to have to make its decisions according to the differing rules of its various state and territory branches.

Geoffrey Kennett, SC, for Mr Setka, wants an undertaking from Labor that it will not push ahead with Monday’s planned meeting or an injunction from the court to stop the ALP’s ruling body from holding the expulsion vote until the case has been decided.

Mr Borsky argued that the expulsion could go ahead and then be reversed if the court decided that it was indeed unlawful.

Justice Riordan did not rule on the timing of the meeting but indicated that the ‘‘balance of convenience’’ was in Mr Setka’s favour and that the union leader would face ‘‘some prejudice’’ of being kicked out of the party and then reinstated.

The judge said the complexity of the materials put before him by the contending legal teams meant that would have to reserve judgement after hearing the evidence and there would be no decision before Monday.

Justice Riordan also note that the parties to the case were ‘‘at least considering the possibility’’ that the dispute might end up in the High Court.

The case continues.

Is Shorty behind all this as he tries to retake the leadership and keep Labor in OPPOSITION for the next 30 years ?

Albo is throwing his weight around hoping he doesn't overbalance.

Wonder what the unions who control Labor reckon about this ?

The unions never had this sort of trouble when Shorty was there.

The best thing the Union movement could do for its members and the working public is separate itself entirely from Labor as it is now constituted, as the uni quadrangle sidewalk cafe latte` consuming bunch of know-all elitists that it is, and that includes tossing all the feminists out of the ACTU sweet jobs... and then the Union need to go their own way and re-earn respect from the working public as a truly independent organisation dedicated to helping and supporting those who work for a living, and not just as some adjunct to the social revolution designed by the half-educated elitists in Labor these days...

You were missed, cods:  http://www.ozpolitic.com/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1562488673/

Moves to expel John Setka from the ALP have been put on hold, whilst awaiting a court injunction decision.

This could drag on for months.

Nothing serious, I hope.

Welcome back.

"Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese's plan to expel controversial construction union boss John Setka from the Australian Labor Party next week has been thwarted in the Victorian Supreme Court.

"The battle, which has been described by national branch as "disruptive and detrimental" to the Labor party, could drag on for months, and the matter may end up in the High Court.

"This afternoon the ALP agreed to delay its plans while the Supreme Court considered an injunction request from Mr Setka, the CFMEU construction division secretary, to prevent his expulsion".

As long as it wasn't that killer flu.

It's claimed a few lives in WA.

And no, I can't see Albo winning.

At the very worst, Setka might agree to leave the ALP for two years and then come back when Albo is busy pulling the knife out of his back.
